Features

  • Mechanically robust with thicker walls and higher stack height when compared to SpeedStack™
  • Connectors and other mezzanine systems
  • Split-pad PCB design
  • Design includes contacts with gradual lead-in
  • Multiple circuit sizes (22, 60 and 82) with a range of 6 to 32 differential pairs
  • Low profile (as low as 7.00mm)
  • Shares the same footprint as SpeedStack™ receptacles
  • Compatible with SpeedEdge™ Plug for a robust mezzanine solution
  • 92-Ohm impedance
  • 85-Ohm impedance versions in development
  • Robust insert-molded wafer with protected shrouded housing
  • Securely holds thick PCBs; delivers durability and high-mating cycles
  • Allows for electrical tuning performance to reach data rates to over 40 Gbps per differential pair
  • Lessens risk of contact stubbing and supports highmating cycles. Accommodates PCBs with blunt chamfers
  • Offers high-density signal solution with flexible pin counts
  • Delivers superior signal integrity performance via optimal airflow. Provides real estate savings in space-constrained applications
  • Drop-in replacement for rugged edge-card applications
  • Provides high speed and design flexibility to address PCB space constraints
  • Provides superior impedance control
  • Will support PCIe Generation (Gen) 3.0 and Intel QuickPath Interconnect (QPI) requirements for next-generation I/O and memory signaling
  • Provides support to the terminal location to improve electrical balance within the signals for low-profile, high-density systems
